New Rug, finally!


This weekend we went to my in laws to celebrate O's birthday, it was yummy, cozy and fun. Their home is beautiful, designed and built by O's dad in the early 80s, on a nice wooded, private piece of land outside of Atlanta. I love going there, and I usually investigate all of the rugs when I do. There are rugs on every floor, some on the walls, even stunning tapestries on the chairs and sofas, it is a textile lover's delight, to put it mildly.


We mentioned that we are looking for a suitable rug for our living room, and they offered us a stunning blue and white silk Persian (not sure if it is actually a Persian, but it looks like it for me, maybe less complex in design.) We came home and put it down right away, and it makes the room feel even cozier. It is more formal that I usually like, and with the Chippendale love seat, even more so. I need to toughen up eventually... I do love it though, the colors are perfect.  I love it, more and more every day, I just love it.

  1. I love it. And I don't think it's too formal. It's what goes on top of it that counts. And it looks pretty wonderful in that room.

  11. Its definitely not too formal. In fact, the minute I looked at the first image you included in this post, I thought about how relaxing the room must be. The furniture is all neutral colors, so are the window treatments. The rug gives the room a feeling of age and comfort. I seriously love it!
